50. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked the Prime Minister if he can now indicate when he hopes to be able to introduce the measure establishing the Statutory Committee to administer the fund for the relief of enlisted persons who have exceptional financial liabilities?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Hayes Fisher)
The Prime Minister has asked me to reply to this question. As I have previously stated, it is not at present contemplated that any legislation will be necessary.
Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in answer to me the Prime Minister used the words "Statutory Committee"; and how can a Statutory Committee be appointed without legislation?
§ Mr. HAYES FISHER
I hope to issue a White Paper shortly, which will enable the hon. Gentlemen to deal with the question.
